j During the coining Presidential year The Tribune |
will bo a more effective agency than over for telling |
| the newH bent worth knowing, and l'or enforcing !
sound polities. Fi\m the day the war closed it lias \
i boon most anxious for an end of sectional strife, i
Hut it saw two years ago, and was the first persist- |
I ently to Proclaim the nev danger to the country
from the revived alliance of the Solid South and |
Tammany Hull. Against that danger it sought to |
; rally the old party of Freedom and the I'nion. It
began by demanding the abandonment of personal
dislikes, and set the example. It called for an end
to attacks upon each other instead of the enemy;
and for the heartiest agreement upon whatever tit
i candidates the majority should put up against the 1
common foe. Since then the tide of disaster has i
been turned back; every doubtful state tins been 1
won, and the omens for National victory w ere never ;
more cheering. j ,
THE TRIBUNE'S POSITION.
Of The Tribune's share in all this, those speak i 1
most enthusiastically who have •seen most of the j 1
struggle. It will faithfully portray the varning
phases of the campaign now beginning it will 1
earnestly strive that the party of Freedom, Fnion
and Public Faith may select the man surest to win, i
! and surest to make a good President. Hut in this
1 crisis it can conceive of no nomination this party I 1
could make that would not lie preferable to the best )
that could possibly be supported by the Solid South |
and Tammany Hall. I
The Tribune is now spending much labor and
money than ever before to hold the distinction it has
enjoyed of the largest circulation among the brut
people. it secured, and means to retain it, by be
j coming the medium of the best thought and the
' Voice of the best conscience of the time, by keeping
abreast of the highest progress, favoring the freccst |
discussions, hearing all sides, appealing always to
the best intelligence and the purest morality, and rc
! fusing to carter to the tastes of the vile or the preju
j dices of the ignorant.
SPKCI \ L FEATURES.
, Hie distinctive features of The Tribune are known j
to everybody. It gives all the news. It lias the j
best correspondents, and retains them from year to j
| year, It is the only paper that maintains a special !
telegraphic wire of Its own between its office and j
1 Washington. Its scientific, literary, artistic and r c- i
ligioiis intelligence is the fullest, "its book reviews ]
, arc the best. Its commercial and tinanc.ial news is 1
the most exact Its type is the largest: and its ar- j
rangctnent the most systematic.
THE HEM 1 WEEKLY Till HUNK
i is by far the most successful Semi-Weekly in the
. country, having four times the circulation of any
! other in New York. It is especially adapted to the
large class of intelligent, professional or business
: readers too far from New York to depend on our
! papers for the daily news, who nevertheless want
j the editorials, correspondence, hook reviews, scien
tific matter, lectures, literary raiscellaney, etc., for
which The Tribune is famous. Like The Weekly
j it contains sixteen pages, and is in convenient form
i for binding,
THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE
! remains the great favorite of our substantial country |
j population, and lias the largest circulation of tny |
| Weekly issued from the of lice of a Daily paper in
! New York, or, so far as we know, in the United j
| States. It revises and condenses all the news of the I
I week into more readable shape. Its agricnltural de
i partment Is more carefully conducted than ever, and I
lit has always been considered the best. Its market j
j reports are the official standard for the Dairymen's ]
j Association, and have long been recognized author
I itv on cattle, grain and general country produce.
| There tire special departments for the young and for
j household interests; the new handiwork department
1 already extremely popula.*, gives unusually accurate
| and comprehensive instructions in knitting, crochet-
I ing, and ktndrid subjects; while poetry, Motion and
1 the humors of the day are all abundantly supplied,
j The verdict of the tens of thousand old readers who
i have returned to it during the past year is that they
j lind it better than ever. Increasing patronage and
fuel lit ias enable us to reduce the rates to the lowest
point we have ever touched, and to oticr the most
1 amazing premiums yet given, as follows:
